CHAPTER 3: History to 1800

3.2 - Antiquity to the end of the Middle Ages

fig.15: a remarkable re-drawing of the "dulcimer" detail from the cover of Egerton 1139 BM Egerton 1139;
from the collection of notes about dulcimers left at his death by Dr. Tobias Norlind; labelled 'Panum Titel', but the illustration does not appear in the English version of that work.

There are many interesting points of difference between this drawing and the original carving, not least King David's hands, the sticks, and the harp strings.
